Market Street closed for up to five weeks
Market Street in Newbury has closed for up to five weeks from Monday 28 October.
The closure will enable important infrastructure work required as part of the multi-million pound regeneration of the Market Street area.
One of the first tasks required is to install a new sewer to serve the 200 new homes, and businesses, coming to the site. West Berkshire Council has granted a work permit to Cappagh to install the sewer and as a result the road will be closed between Mayors Lane and West Berkshire Council offices from Monday 28th October and around 1 December.
Motorists are asked to avoid the area if possible or allow extra time for their journeys. The diversion routes are as follows: Clockwise:
Cheap Street, Bear Lane, A339 (southbound), St John's Road, Newtown Road and Batholomew Street
Bartholomew Street, Newtown Road, A339 (northbound) and Cheap Street
